Vincent Gallo - Live At Royal Festival Hall, April 5th, 2004


This is probably the best sounding live recording I have heard of a Vincent Gallo Show. The recording has a nice mellow vibe throughout the duration of the 12 songs. Pretty low key and jazzy most of the time except for tracks three and ten where the band jams for a while (which is cool to hear). To my knowledge, track 11 entitled "You Sure Are" is exclusive to this recording. I haven't heard any other versions of it out there yet. There are also two covers on this one; "Moonchild" by King Crimson and Henry Mancini's "Moonriver" from Breakfast at Tiffany's which features PJ Harvey on Vocals and John Frusciante on Guitar for the final song of the show.

NEW LINK! The Vampires' Sound Incorporation - Psychedelic Dance Party (1969)


Now here is a strange record put out on the Mercury Label in 1969 by two German Composers, Manfred Hübler and Siegfried Schwab. Although this album wasn't technically a soundtrack, the music was used in the Jess Franco film "Vampyros Lesbos" (which I understand was quite terrible). The music is pretty over the top psychedelic cocktail jazz/funk with a vampiric theme, kind of hokey, but none the less fun to listen to... Track three seems to be a spoof on the Rolling Stones song "Satisfaction". This would make a great soundtrack for a cocktail party, and a good edition to your eurotrash library...

BIATHALON - BIATHALON 2 (2007)


Recorded at home in Portland, Oregon on 4 track cassette tape during the winter of 2006 and early 2007. Deep melodic textural drones; soothing background listening. Released by EED (R.I.P. 2004-2009) on May 26th, 2007. Now available from Wil-Ru Records.

Review:
"Eric Adrian Lee is somewhat of an underground gem in the musical and artistic world, having many different bands and projects as well as establishing himself as an excellent visual artist. On Biathalon 2, Eric paints us beautiful sonic pictures of long billowing clouds covering a silent sea of white noise. Unfamiliar melodies in familiar keys creep into the scene on an old broken two-way radio, the weather subtly changes. Biathalon 2 is a vibrant portrayal of colors and landscapes that you can get completely lost in."

Track Listing:
1. Warm Front
2. Neumayer Station
3. Cloud Formations
4. Program Information (featuring Cup Na Cup)
5. Underwater Is A Place To Be Alone

Elusive Dreams: A Mixtape By The Cowboys From Sweden (2008)


Incase you were wondering who are The Cowboys From Sweden? Well, I believe that we are the only Lee Hazlewood cover band in the world (to my knowledge). ...And if you aren't already familiar with Lee Hazlewood, Well, I would recommend his 1970 album "Cowboy in Sweden" (from where we got our name) to start with. The Cowboys From Sweden are Robbie Augspurger and Eric Lee along with some occasional help from Eric Dexter and Ellen Werner. I plan to post our recordings here soon, in the mean time you can download individual tracks from or virb page (http://www.virb.com/thecowboysfromsweden). Keep your eyes open for our version of "Leather & Lace" coming soon.

Elusive Dreams is a rare look into the musical tastes of The Cowboys From Sweden. We would like to dedicate this Mixtape to the memory of Lee Hazlewood who died last August. Lush cinematic emotional terrain, highly recommended!!!
